Please read our SEND Information Report to find out about the variety of ways that we at Woodhill identify and support our SEND pupils, to enable them to reach their full potential.
Please read the 2023/2024 report below.
The Children and Families Bill requires Greenwich to publish and keep under review information about services they expect to be available for children and young people with special educational needs aged 0-25.
This is the Local Offer.
The intention of the Local Offer is;
- To improve choice and transparency for families
- To provide an important resource for professionals in understanding the range of services and provision in a local area
- To inform the joint commissioning process for children and young people with SEND by setting out in a single place what is available locally
It is central to the ethos of the SEND Green Paper which set out a vision of a new, transparent and holistic SEN system that the Local offer is co-produced with children, young people and their families.
